Gal Gadot’s training regime for Wonder Woman was no joke and that’s why she had to work with trainers such as Mark Twight, who was responsible for whipping the men from 300 into jaw-dropping shape. The fact that she couldn’t even perform a pull up before she started her training is testament  to her rigorousness routine. 

She spoke about her rigorous training regime when she went on “Live with Kelly & Ryan”, as reported by Business Insider.  “I was training for six months prior to the shoots, and six hours a day. I did two hours [of] gym work, two hours [of] fight choreography and one and a half hours—two hours horseback riding, which is super hard! When people used to tell me, ‘Yeah, I do sport, I ride horses,’ I was like, ‘That’s not a sport, the horse does everything.’ But no! You’ll be surprised, it’s so painful.”
